Cool.. Why you suppose its so much cheaper than other turbos?? even cheaper than the same company's turbos for other models.. more room to play with maybe. def lots of room around that engine.. and no clutches and associated ducting in the way..
Id like to see some reviews and comparison to the MPI

That may have a lot to do with it, there is plenty of room. Also I noticed the use of silicon lines, ecu reflash. These guys from northern MN have been doing sleds for a long time.

Nothing yet for the TXZ and I haven't heard of anyone working on a supercharger either. Just turbo.

Does the lesser cost of this turbo kit mean that it isn't as good quality? I see a lot of talk about materials and parts. Are those worse, or still as good, just cheaper?

I posted about Silber on facebook group Side X Side Nation.. (good group check it out) so far one guy says they are great.. unless you need parts or customer service.. then absolutely terrible in that department.. but that's just one guy so far.

The thing for me, is MPI has been doing work on this motor for over a decade and from what I can read they're top shelf when it comes to customer service.
